Ingredients you'll need
  • 200g beetroot
  • A thumb of turmeric
  • 1 lime
  • 35g walnuts
  • 125g blueberries
  • 300ml maple water
From your kitchen
  • A few ice cubes
Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Scrub and trim the beetroot. Chop and pop into your blender. Peel and grate the turmeric into the blender – it has quite a strong flavour, so just use half if you’re not sure how much you like it. Grate in the zest from the lime and squeeze in the juice.

  • 2.

    Tip in the walnuts and blueberries. Pour in 300ml maple water. Add a few ice cubes and blend for a few mins till smooth and combined. Taste and grate in a little more turmeric, if you’d like more, and blend again. Pour into glasses and serve.

  • Tip

    Mellow yellow
    Turmeric has a warming, mustardy flavour that works beautifully with the earthy sweetness of beetroot and walnuts. It can be quite potent, so just use a little start with, then add more as you blend. Turmeric also loves to turn things yellow, so grate it onto a plate that you can dunk straight in the washing-up bowl, or grate it directly into your blender. Wearing gloves will help stop your fingers turning yellow.
